Penny Royal Adventures, Launceston

#24 of 101 in Things to do in Launceston
Theme Park · Hidden Gem · Water / Amusement Park
The Penny Royal offers a rich experience steeped in convict history dating back to Van Diemen's Land in 1825. Board the Dark Ride or the Brigg Tamar and immerse yourself in the escapades of infamous local bushranger Mathew Brady, scamper along the cliff walk, experience the quick jump, zip across the site, climb the cliffs and mine for gemstones and gold. Beware the authentic 24 pound cannon fire! After an action packed day, sit back, relax, and enjoy the picturesque replica 1825 stone buildings overlooking the lagoon as you indulge in great local food, fine Tasmanian wines and craft.

  • Great place to bring your kids. We stayed one night at Penny Royal Inn and did the activities over two days with a flexible all inclusive ticket. Rock climbing, zip line , jump, and some other rides for younger kids. Everything can be done in few hours. Very helpful staff and instructors. Nice restaurants around including a cellar door.
  • Great spot for a bit of family fun. The cliff walk, zip line and rock climb are great fun for everyone, and there are tamer rides and adventures for younger family members. It's quite a picturesque spot that is close to the city centre, but still has a completely removed feel owing to the scenery. Highly recommended for a good half day out for the family.
